Copying to a new kindle

Is there a way to copy folder structure and contents to a new kindle? I don't think so but I thought I'd ask to be sure.

If the content is DRM protected then no... if it does not have DRM then it works just fine

No, there is no way to copy collections from one Kindle to another. You need to manually "re-tag" your books on the new device.

Yup. Though that was the case. Thanks.

Actually, you can. You have to download the books again (from archived items) but then you can copy over the collection (folder structure).
See page 55 of the manual - titled "Adding Collections from Another Kindle"

Just checked on my K2i with 2.5.6 and the option is definitely there
